For more than 100 years, RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) has been working to change both legislation and attitudes surrounding accidents, from the compulsory wearing of seatbelts and the campaign to stop drink driving, to the Cycling Proficiency Test and to the more recent the ban on handheld mobile phones behind the wheel and our Safer by Design framework for house builders.

We have an annual turnover of £7million and circa 80 staff members across, England, Scotland, Wales and other countries. As we embark on our strategy and next stage of development, we are looking for a new Treasurer to join our board.

We are looking for someone with a range of skills and experiences including strategic finance, someone who is passionate about safety and innovation. We are looking for a financially qualified professional with an understanding of charities who can support us to develop further.

Our new Treasurer will have experience in investment strategy, financial risk management, financial systems, pensions, and be an innovator who will support us in horizon scanning, strategy, risk management.
